The Gay & Lesbian Leadership Institute has started the Presidential Appointments Project, a nonpartisan initiative aimed at identifying, recruiting and vetting LGBT professionals for potential political appointments in the next presidential administration. The Leadership Institute is partnering with LGBT organizations including the Human Rights Campaign, the National Gay and Lesbian Task Force, the National Black Justice Coalition and the Stonewall Democrats in the effort. "The next administration must know that we are concerned about being included, determined to contribute our talents, skills and insights, and eager to participate in the hard work of governing our country," said Ambassador James C. Hormel, the first openly gay U.S. ambassador.
